Foster Holly Bush

Anonymous added on June 18, 2011 | Answered

I have (2) Foster holly bushes, about 4-5' tall planted this past fall. On the back on numerous leaves, there are small black bugs with red rings around the bodies, which are eating the leaves. Is there a particular type of insecticide spray we should use?
